Methamphetamine (METH) is a widely abused psychomotor stimulant, and its use is increasing. Although serious side effects have been reported in METH users, reports of cutaneous side effects are rare in the literature. In this case report, we present a 26-year-old male patient with itchy and red skin lesions on the face that developed after METH use. We recommend that clinicians be careful about sudden skin lesions that develop after the use of METH. The results of this case report highlight the need for further research on the side effects of METH use.
